Now Mary Lou loved Johnny with a love mean and true
She said “Baby I’ll work for you every day, bring my money home to you”
One day he up and left her and ever since that
She waits down at the end of that dirt road for young Johnny to come back
Struck me kinda funny, funny yeah to me
How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe
Take a baby to the river, Kyle William they called him
Wash the baby in the water, take away little Kyle’s sin
In a whitewash shotgun shack an old man passes away
Take his body to the graveyard, over him they pray
Lord won’t you tell us, tell us what does it mean
At the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe
Congregation gathers down by the riverside
Preacher stands with a Bible, groom stands waitin’ for his bride
Congregation gone and the sun sets behind a weepin’ willow tree
Groom stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly
Wonderin’ where can his baby be
Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

please comment below. share with friends… I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts, opinions and reasons…

*respect is the key.
if we don’t agree with someone else’s views – ask questions- debate- do some research and state facts- but be respectful at all times. listen to one another. sometimes I think the majority of the problems in society start with not fully listening to one another and be too REACTIVE. Have an open mind and an open heart. i can honestly say that holding on to a set of beliefs so tightly and not wanting to hear anyone else’s perspective because of my “beliefs”, actually made me stupid. belief is a strong word… and a belief. in something that’s so strong without knowing and having an understanding of the other sides is dangerous. I try to be careful with my beliefs whether it be over use of the word itself or quickly subscribing to a belief without knowing all the facts and educating myself on the opposing views that are different than my own.
anyways – I’m am not pro or anti trump… what I mean by that is I accept he is our president and have respect for our country enough to act like an adult and to know that I am lucky in many ways to be an American. i posed this question because so many people hate our president and have no problems defacing property with crude and vulgar remarks about him, have no problem burning the American flag because of their disappointment in him getting voted into office… talk shit about our president on public forums and act pretty badly whenever speaking about him. in my opinion- by showing no respect for the man who was elected our president of the United States of America – makes us look bad. not to mention divided…and like little whiney baby’s who didn’t get our way. if we want to be treated with respect we have to be respectful regardless if we hate or love the guy. if you don’t agree with something he’s done or said… that’s fine and totally your right to voice it – but in a civil manner. maybe dive deeper into educating and researching how different media gets fed differently in different parts of the US. Maybe try to look for something positive he’s doing (if you don’t like him) and if you do like him try to understand the reasons behind why others don’t.
I think I can say as an American citizen – born and raised in California – I work hard for the money I make. I am not racist, I’m am not privileged, I’m not unkind. I am for people. my biggest concern is we have to be right as a country and help ourselves first and find a way together as Americans before we can help anyone else. I’m not opposed to people who come here from other countries and want to stay here because they may have more opportunities out here than where they are from. I think that is what America is made of and that’s why you find the most diversity out here than anywhere else in the world. However, if you do want to come and stay in America then do it the right way. Do it like my grandmother from Japan did in the 1950s. BECOME A CITIZEN. PAY TAXES LIKE THE REST OF US.
why would anyone get angry at us citizens wanting that from non-US citizens living out here illegally? think about that for a moment. if I went to any other country and decided I wanted to stay and live out there- I would have to do it the right way. once my visa was up- they would send me back – no if ands or butts.
you may hate my views on this subject but if you knew me and how much I want this world to be a better place you would understand that what I’m saying doesn’t come from a place of hate. it comes from a place of love and doing the right thing. Anyone who works hard to earn however much they make deserve that money from working hard. I love to help those who are in real need of help. I just feel that too many people out there who need to LEARN to help themselves. Some people are just lazy and take advantage of the system and the help they received. … I treat everyone I meet – with respect. it doesn’t mater to me what color you are or where you come from, how much money you have, how you look, or what you own. it’s how you conduct yourself that matters. how much integrity you have and kindness you share. it is about hard work. what you put in is what you’ll get in return.
I was going to continue with my thoughts on this but realized that i’m getting off course a bit. my question that I asked at the beginning of this post was no more than me being curious. not everyone is going to think and feel the same- but we should be able to voice our thoughts and opinions without cutting below the belt or getting out of control.
anyways I hope all of you have a beautiful and fulfilling day. please post your answers, feelings and thoughts in the comments below.
thank you. 🙂
I go to cvs on my way home
To not feel lonelier than I already do
You broke my heart
And you think I did you wrong
You have no heart
If you even think for a second that
That is true..
You have no idea what I feel
Cause you just don’t care.
You believe in things that are not real
And you leave people
To carry the pain and hurt
That you cause
And you go on
But do not
I keep myself busy
To barely keep myself alive
I wasn’t like this before
I met you
And you destroyed me
I hope someday you feel
Exactly how you made me feel
My love for you was pure and true
And you made me become one of you.
And barely alive
I have my Bullshit
Like everyone does
But right now
Let’s put that aside
And remember the love
All of you are beautiful
And we are in this together
Even when it feels like we’re not
Remember you are loved
The time is fleeting
A smile across the table
I never get tired
Of smiling at you
It’s just a matter of time
Someday soon… Baby
I’m gonna make you mine.
Ha. I was dating one
Don’t give a fuck about
Trying to make you see
You might have lived more years than me
But you’re blind
And sometimes so very unkind
That I give up
You gave up on me
So I give up on you
It’s not worth my life
To try to be in yours
I like my men crazy about me
Like I’m crazy about them
I don’t like a man
That won’t let himself feel
Cause they can’t deal with that shit
You take your own soul
And tried to destroy mine
Actuality did for awhile
Took my smile
Took my love
Trouble and crazy maker
You wouldn’t know a good thing
If it landed in your lap
If it hit you smack in the face
That face I shall now erase
Just as easily as it
For you to forget mine
My two cents
Ain’t got a dime
For my time
wasted it wasting
And if the river runs through
nobody can get through
Then bless my stardumb!
You’re just another bum
You Let old nonsense
Turn you numb
And the best of you
But soon you will turn blue.
Leave the dying for the dead
Your worst enemy is
Your own head
And With that said
I’m on my way too
That’s not a put down
That’s an honest observation
Is sad that you’re so stuck in the beliefs of a fool
Kinda like some religion makes you believe things and fear things you can’t see our haven’t seen
It’s sad that I’m paying the price for someone else’s fuck up
When I love you
And you treat me like I’m the worst human being
When I never cheated on you
I tried to move on wgeb you told me you wanted nothing to do with me cause you thought I was up to no good cause I have friends of the opposite sex who I’ve been friends with for decades and because I work at a bar.
You made me almost believe that I was doing something wrong
When I wasn’t and I’m not.
You speak to me as if I were the one who screwed you over and hurt you
You made me pay the price
Well it’s too bad for you that you’re so afraid of being hurt agsin that you actually make yourself believe that I’m hurting you.
Look at the facts
No one would be there like I had been.
No one would put up with that crazy shit and abusive shit you did. Treating me like a punching bag.
All because your afraid to change.
It’s sad cause I saw hope and love and light in you and you’d rather give up and be like everybody else. Too proud to admit that the problems that are you need change and that life is worth it. I’m worth it.
I can’t help that you don’t see that now.
You joke around and treat everything like they’re disposable.
That’s the kind of teaching you want to pass down?
All because of the hurt caused by people who are just like you. Not really living but just waiting to die. I’ve tried to reach out cause I thought there was good in you but you chose side of evil and anger and hate. Over nothing. Little things that upset us- we shouldn’t hold on to if we really love. We are suppose to see beyond the little mistakes and still give unconditional love cause we all do things sometimes that make the other person upset. You don’t trash someone over the small stuff.
You don’t trash someone you loved period.
I never cheated on you. I was always there for you and supported you and gave you love and did the best I could. You act like the kind of man that doesn’t deserve the title of a man cause you makes the one who loves you the most unconditionally ( me) hurt just because you can. Just because you hurt from things that aren’t even my fault. Just cause you haven’t really deals with your hurt. You just run away from it and so it will never go away.
No matter how many years you spend avoiding it…you haven’t dealt with it to make you understand it abd to make you get through it abd be able to let that past go. It’s easy to blame someone new and to take it out on them for what someone else did but what’s easy is done by the weak.
The reality is you will lose out. You had your chance to change and to open yourself up to love and no go back to negative beliefs.
You had your Chance to embrace love
Who cares if it’s a little scary and yeah we all could get hurt. But if you treat the people who really love you like you want to be treated then the right one will do the same.
Some day you will know and feel how true my love was… And how much I enjoyed you and how much love i had for you and how you just continued to stomp all over it. I think that when I’m gone now you will see it and feel it and regret it.
Cause you’ll know it
And you’ll know that everything you did only made me have to go away.
You gave up on you. I never did
But now I can’t hold on to someone who doesn’t even act like I matter.
I can’t hold on to someone who shows me so much hate and no love.
There’s no more i can and no more that I will do when you do nothing in return. I don’t have to go anymore. Your choice is yours. And so are the consequences
I will not reach out to someone who cares very little about me.
I will find someone who knows how to love and who isn’t afraid
Maybe not tomorrow maybe not today
But I’m not looking for that right now
But I will have it
And remember you as the one who never really loved me
The good times we spent will forever be in my heart
But you can’t be in my life being as negative and self destructive as you
Maybe I’ll see you again some day
Maybe I won’t
But I’m not holding my breath anymore
You’ve made!me do that far too long
And now I’m gone.
“don’t be afraid to open your eyes ”
it looks like the tide is calling
send off is drawing near
the whistle blowing
the commander’s on the phone
i wont know your thoughts when i’m gone
i wont have a lot to say
but i’ll be bored of smiling when it ain’t at you
and its alright, its alright
its alright, its alright
why you’e my hand-me-down jean
i’m your warranted queen
my mouth on your spoon
goodnight red balloon
you play your cards with a mystery face
and use your golden grace
i’ll be sending my guards to come find you
i don’t know where to fall
or if this is love at all
but your lips on mine have branded a sign
but its alright, its alright
it’s alright, it’s alright
you’re my hand-me-down jean
i’m your warranted queen
my mouth on your spoon
goodnight red balloon
I’d rather not
Who I can’t trust
Cause they can’t trust
And because of that
They act in ways that
can’t be trusted.
This is not the kind of life I want to live
If this is a game for them
I don’t want to play
I’d rather not stay
for the misfire
like a bird on a wire
From some liar
Just let me be
Free from all this toxicity
Cause that’s not who I am
And I don’t give a damn
If thats the way they wanna be
Just stay the fuck away from me.
